Vijis Apricot Orange Marmalade - Peach Orange Marmalade

I did not intend to post anything today.
But then,
Viji's Apricot Orange Marmalade made me to do this.

I am not a great fan of jams. For that matter, I am not a great fan of sweets. For this obvious reason, I don't try preparing jams myself. Basically you need interest to do anything isn't it. This is the first time I prepared Jam myself.I was really excited to see the output.Thanks to
Viji . When I saw her Apricot Orange Marmalade, I couldn't resist. I wanted to try it immediately. I tried this with Peach instead of Apricot.

As this is my first attempt, I did not want to take the risk of wasting fruits.

Hence I used
Peach - 1 Large (which I had)
Orange Zest - 1/4 Tsp
Orange juice - Obtained from 1/2 Orange
Sugar - 4 Tsp
Cloves -3
Salt - A pinch.

I ran out of Lemon, so didn't use Lemon juice. ( I couldn't wait to get a lemon)

MW high - 5 mins
MW low - 10 mins

Actual recipe here

I started having it before allowing it to cool. I am going to shop apricots this weekend and prepare one.Once again Thanks to Viji.

Latha said...

Hey! Thats good! Can't believe its a first attempt.Jam needs one fruit containing pectin and peach is as good as apricot.

SeeC said...

Thanks Latha for the useful information about Jam.
